stated that he would not be prepared to murder thousands of innocent people.
Prime Minister David Cameron said "Since the Crusades, indiscriminate slaughter has been an essential tool of British foreign policy. Britain has a long and proud record of the brutal killing of enormous numbers of people - the starving of the Irish in the mid-19th century, the concentration camps of the Boer War, the Amritsar Massacre in 1919, the bombing of Dresden in 1945, Kenya and Malaya in the 1950s, and the genocide of Tasmania's aboriginal population, to name but a few. Now this fellow Corbyn comes along and wants to overturn all this magnificent heritage of violence in favour of building world peace. Has he no respect for tradition?"
Some members of Corbyn's own party joined in the angry criticism. One asked "The Americans have at least one massacre a week in their own country. How can we expect our American allies to take us seriously if we're not even prepared to drop the occasional nuke or two?'
